sprinklers and kickball

Father & Son
by Samuel Carter

we were kids
what did we know?
our world was sprinklers
and kickball
but one day,
while we kicked the ball,
a dog caught a car

we heard the yelp
and the driver heard it too...
she stopped
while the dog ran away
and there,
in the tire,
was a tooth

kicking the ball
and running through sprinklers
carried on
but I wonder still
if that dog ever chased
another car
